Hong Kong Drone Gallery - Anderson Road Quarry

Located along the hillsides behind Kwun Tong's concrete jungle, the former quarry at Anderson Road is under redevelopment into a residential area. The quarry had operated for over 50 years from the 1960s, providing some 100 million tonnes of rocks for major infrastructure projects such as Kai Tak Airport, Cross Harbour Tunnel, and high-speed rail link. Spanning 86 hectares, the quarry site returned to government ownership in 2017 and is expected to be house some 25,000 residents.

Views from these stretches are quite nice with spectacular harbour views. While the government had intended to build mostly private housing here, plans changed and now most of it will be used to build public housing instead.

With its elevated position, lifts will take pedestrians downhill although getting to the MTR this way is not convenient. Plans to bring an MTR extension to this area have also stalled.
